As I understand traceroute - it sends out packets with increasing ttl (time
to live )counts and receives ttl expired responses back. The time is measured.
Now when I remember right, when checking a slow connection to some site -
the times after the bottleneck are all slow.
from man page:
"a line is printed showing the ttl, address of the gateway and round trip
time of each probe.
with your speed issue: If you have ADSL ( asymmetric ), you may want to
check the ratio of in/out bandwidth in the router, may be it's _very_
asymmetric causing your slow times.
